One of the neighbors in the standings will be able to win this "fight for six points"? Even the largest bookmakers believe the chances of victory of the opponents are approximately equal.
For the "Scousers" December marathon (along with January) in the Premier League can hardly be called successful. The team from Liverpool managed to win only one victory in eight matches. But on the road and the devastating – Burnley were defeated with the score 1:5.
But in the third round of the FA Cup Everton had beaten Lincoln city and passed to the next stage. Perhaps this success will raise mood, ward Mark Silva and will allow them to return to victories in the championship?
But "Cherry" was not able to go in the fourth round of the national Cup, losing to Brighton with the score 1:3. But perhaps it's for the best. Indeed, in the last three matches of the championship, where Bournemouth scored only one point, the team of Eddie Howe conceded twelve goals. Now "Boskom" will focus on the Premier League and, in the case of successful performances in the second round, will be able to rise above twelfth.
In the third round of the Everton and Bournemouth shared the points at the stadium of Vitaliti. The game is the twenty-fifth of August ended with the score 2:2.
